2006 Chevrolet Colorado Overview

The 2006 Chevrolet Colorado is Chevy's midsize truck representative. Of course, "midsize" is used loosely here, as the crew cab measures over 17 feet long and 5 feet wide.

Two engines are available: the dohc 2.8-liter, 169-ci dohc I4 rated at 175 horsepower at 5600 rpms with torque at 185@2800. The available dohc I5 is a slight step up, at 3.5 liters and 211 cubic inches, giving 220 and 225 horsepower and torque at the same RPMS.

Mileage is good for a truck, with 27c/21h for the 5-speed manual dohc I4, ranging to the more gas guzzling 23h/18c dohc I5 automatic.
